Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925), novelist, agriculturalist and colonial administrator [more]. The verse is from J. K. Stephen (1859-1892), 'To R. K.' (1891): 'Will there never come a season / Which shall rid us from the curse / Of a prose which knows no reason / And in unmelodious verse ... / When there stands a muzzled stripling, / Mute, beside a muzzled bore: / When the Rudyards cease from Kipling / And the Haggards ride no more.'
